ensign's friend. senator ensign's friend named rick santorum. the letter said, "i am reaching out to you because i would like your help. i do know about you and your relationship with john ensign. i'm also aware of the man you profess to be and the positions you have taken publicly with regards to family, integrity and ethics. i am sending this note along to you because of your affiliation with fox news. what i have put in motion with the letter i have sent megyn kelly and fox news. i've tried for one year with john and others to resolve an unbelievable set of actions john initiated and perpetuated bringing great destruction to me and my family." doug hampton attached to the e-mail to rick santorum a letter he had sent to fox news to a host named megyn kelly at fox news. the letter explained senator ensign's affair. his pursuit of doug's wife, his affair with doug's wife, and it explained how senator ensign subsequently fired both doug and his wife. so all that is explained in this letter. and that letter is sent to rick santorum. rick santorum is now of course a front running republican

"on june 15th, 2009, doug hampton forwarded a copy of the letter and e-mail to rick santorum and asked senator santorum for help w
half of the precincts have now reported, 46%. and all of a sudden rick santorum is slightly atop the field with 24%. he's 162 votes ahead of mitt romney, 12,417 for rick santorum, 12,255 for mitt romney. ron paul is now third, 22%, 11,238. newt gingrich, look at this, a distant fourth, only 6,788 votes, 13%. if we move to the bottom three, you see rick perry with just more than 5,000 votes, 10%. almost 3,000 votes for michele bachmann, 6%. 300 or so votes for jon huntsman. but rick santorum, all of a sudden, with almost half of the precincts reporting, slightly ahead. only 162 votes, only 162 votes ahead of mitt romney. it's still a three-man race. still 54% of the precincts remaining outstanding. jim acosta is over at rick santorum headquarters. let's talk to him a little bit. i guess the folks over there, they're pretty happy, at least, right now. a lot of them have come back from the caucuses, right, jim? >> reporter: that's right. they're very happy right now, wolf. they're starting to fill in behind me, and it's just sort of extraordinary to note what you were talking about
the winner. but look at this vote total. he defeats senator rick santorum by 8 votes out of 60,000. 60,000 between them, 120,000 all told. and coming up in third place, just behind him, ron paul in a strong showing here with a fervent, passionate support. he goes on. newt gingrich coming in fourth. texas governor rick perry, michele bachmann, and jon huntsman bringing up the rear there. but what an extraordinarily close race, just minutes ago here in des moines. the chairman of the republican party made the announcement. >> but i can report with 1770 precincts reporting, governor mitt romney received 30,015 votes. senator rick santorum received 30,007 votes. congratulations to governor mitt romney, winner of the 2012 iowa caucuses. congratulations to senator santorum for a very close second place finish and an excellent race here. and congratulations to congressman paul and all the other candidates who competed in the 2012 iowa caucuses. thank you very much and have a good night. >> 8 votes. abc's jake tapper joins me, white house correspondent, also covering the sar tontorum race. >>
romney and rick santorum. now there is a four-vote difference. we are waiting on one precinct in clinton county, we believe -- >> we believe it's about 75 votes. just getting word that karl rove has some big news to report out of new york, ahead to chris wallace. >> thanks so much. karl, have you gotten word from a source in the republican national committee. tell us what it is? >> first, they made the correction in story county, which moved it from an 18-point margin for santorum to a four-vote margin for santorum and the keokuk county precinct, the romny and santorum people have agreed what the count was and -- >> this is in clinton -- >> this is clinton county. the one outstanding precinct in the state and tell show an 18-vote victory in that precinct for mitt romney which will give him a statewide victory of 14 votes over rick santorum. >> i don't understand. you are saying that they have come to an agreement -- >> the official-- the person who got the official piece of paper is missing. but the romney and santorum people who are monitoring it agree on what the number is. so they're
in that precinct for mitt romney which will give him a statewide victory of 14 votes over rick santorum. >> i don't understand. you are saying that they have come to an agreement -- >> the official-- the person who got the official piece of paper is missing. but the romney and santorum people who are monitoring it agree on what the number is. so they're going to -- they basically agreed, we will confirm, both of us, the outcome in this particular precinct and the state party will accept that. >> now, you know, this is obviously pretty big news. you are saying that romney is going to win the iowa caucuses by 14 votes. how solid is your source? >> a pretty good, reliable source. >> you believe that the result i. they gave us earlier, the news about the story county, which moved it, as we just saw, in the most recent update from 18 santorum lead to a 4 santorum lead. iowa is very -- they do politic there is in a very polite fashion. if they came to a disagreement like this tonight, where they can't find the guy with the official piece of paper, they apparently have rounded up the representatives of
on track. >> eight votes, that is mitt romney's winning margin over rick santorum in iowa. the winner wasn't there until three hours ago. the iowa caucuses much about expectations and momentum. who was the winner? good morning. i'm willy geist. this is a special edition of "way too early" live at the 2012 iowa caucuses. we're here again this morning at java joe's. let's get to the results live at 4. in des moines. no one could have imagined just eight votes would separate the top two contenders in iowa's republican caucuses. in a nail biting count that lasted into the early hoursst morning, today mitt romney can claim victory at least by the numbers in the first big test of the 2012 presidential election. the win may be his but all signs now point to a tough fight with a late surging rick santorum at the top of the pack. romney and santorum claimed 25% of the vote. ron paul in third place in the caucuses followed by newt gingrich. after a disappointing fifth place finish, rick perry said he's going back home to texas to "reassess his campaign." michelle bachmann finished behind perry in si
lead in south carolina as well. rick santorum hopes to be the guy to stop him, but santorum is learning that old ef hutton motto holds for presidential candidates too. when front-runners talk, people listen. and santorum is having a sticky time scoring points after his first-place tie in iowa. newt takes on mitt. in just a few weeks, newt gingrich has gone from undisputed front-runner to also ran. and he has mitt romney and his stealth ad campaign to thank for that. i sat down with newt last night after the program and he did not hold back. >> he ought to take those ads home and show them to his grandsons and said, grandpa did this, what do you think about this kind of trash on television? >> newt vows to be the last man in the fight with mitt. >>> plus, politico called it mitt's weekend from hell. the big debate weekend coming up with everyone looking down -- looking to take down romney. "meet the press" anchor and debate host david gregory looks ahead to what could be a make-or-break battle this sunday. >>> and speaking of republican debates, there was one today, a phony funny or die
former senator rick santorum and former governor mitt romney. we are still waiting to hear why we don't have the end result. we had the associated press report this story early on -- that -- >> twice. >> that there was a truck driving from story county, and that is where iowa state university is located. i said university of iowa earlier -- >> wow. >> i got 50 emails. >> you are still not over that. >> i'm not. there was a truck, he was driving, g.o.p. officials right now are saying they don't think that's true. but they are going to come out soon and tell us what the deal is. >> that's the problem. they haven't said anything. just to give you a frame of reference, four years ago, it took them -- well, the caucuses began at 8:00 eastern time and we had a winner, barack obama declared by 9:25 on the democratic side. we are an hour 5, just for those of you counting at home and no winner and no explanation for why there isn't a winner. it's a matter of doing the math, says one of the anchors who couldn't do the math all night i. i got there. >> i don't have the calculator or the votes. n
the senator. they say rick santorum is too liberal. we'll ask franklin graham about his father's help and who evangelical supporters should support. also a possible break in the hunt for the arsonist who set 53 fires over the last few days. we begin with rick santorum. momentum is with the pennsylvania senator and he is sticking to his conservative guns. candidate santorum this afternoon. >> i would suggest if you look at the history of republican nominees, that moderate voters, moderate candidates who were there to appeal to more moderates ended up losing. >> but is that tough enough? listen to what congressman ron paul had to say about santorum earlier to cnn's dana bash. >> why would not he be a good republican nominee? >> he is very liberal. >> santorum is liberal? >> have you looked at his record? >> uh-huh. >> go look at his record. >> cnn political correspondent jim acosta is in boone, iowa. he spent the day with jim santorum. i understand he got some interesting last-minute help. >> reporter: that's right. don't tell jim bob dug per rick santorum is too liberal. the reality show tv sh
to temporarily surrendered the chair here to you as i will last to be the speaker for senator rick santorum this evening. >> do we have any surrogates for senator santorum plight? [laughter] i recognize you to come forward. >> good evening again. my name is john jacobson, and tonight on the in here to vote for rick santorum. rick santorum, a faithful husband, a home-schooled that seven children and former u.s. senator from pennsylvania. it's tempting to believe this presidential nomination is simply political. that if we nominate a candidate who has raised the most money or attracted the most attention we would defeat president obama and our country would be great once again. but to believe this, we must turn our eyes from history. we would have to forget the nature of the problem we face and the conservative cause for which we are fighting. we would have to abandon the issues that have defined us and resigned our movement to perpetual defeat, conceding to the pundits and the political class that all we need is a conservative to win the primary election and a moderate to win the general ele
. at this hour, rick santorum and mitt romney, locked in virtually a dead heat. look at that. almost 60,000 votes, ca s cast. ron paul coming up a strong third. and the rest of the field, the ones who will have an argument to make to voters that they can go on from here, newt gingrich hammered by negative ads falls to fourth place. rick perry there in fifth. michele bachmann, way down in sixth and jon huntsman didn't even campaign here. so, it is a nail-biter. we want to two right to abc news election headquarters in new york where diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos are standing by. and diane and george, what do you make of what the iowans have done here tonight? >> well, this is a season of phenomenal results. this is another one that confounds a lot of people in one sense. you have, yet again, a new front-runner, a tie at the top, with rick santorum pulling it off at the last minute. we've been talking about what a close race these races have become. >> we have never seen a race this close. as terry said just a little bit ago. we have insight from the entrance polls. why it is so close. i w
is still reporting that with 99% of the vote in, the race for first between rick santorum and mitt romney is still at this late hour too close to call. congressman ron paul will come in third. our panel for this portion of our coverage includes msnbc contributor melissa harris perry, professor of political science at tulane. rachel maddow is here, you may remember her from live coverage in the last seven hours. michele goldberg and ranesh. glad to have you here. first let's go -- i believe we have chuck todd is in iowa at the moment. he has been tracking very closely which counties are counted and which are uncounted in this nail biter of an election. what is the latest? >> we have a handful of votes left at this point and so there's various reports out there the google site helping iowa run its -- run that counting process claims everything has been counted and still santorum is ahead. that doesn't matter. it's about what's happening over the next week and the santorum momentum. what to watch for, we had newt gingrich who gave a concession speech that promised to go after mitt romney in
, purnell rick santorum, the dark red is mitt romney, the lighter red is newt gingrich, rick perry the orange, yellow michele bachmann, jon huntsman he didn't contest iowa. he said when the winner of iowa gets to new hampshire, nobody will care. we'll see how that plays out. but look at this when it starts to fill in. this is very early. this is likely to change. i want you to look especially here in the middle of the state. this up here is where you have -- i've circled des moines. the capital. look what you have, a little purple, a little red, a little orange. the reason that could be significant if it holds up, if you go back in time, this is huckabee country. they consolidated around one candidate and propelled mike huckabee to victory. in 2012 if you see a bit of hash in the middle of the map, that tells you that rick santorum will finish in the top three as our entrance poll suggests he will. let's see when they count the votes. but if this is a bunch of different colors in the middle, that suggests to you you have a split among evangelical voters, enough of a split that one
in their political appeal as rick santorum who was defeated in pennsylvania by 17% for re-election shall the fact that ron paul is able to challenge him in a serious race for president, with all his baggage, tells you that the republicans are not lining up behind mitt romney yet. now maybe late tonight i'll change that view but i've watched this thing and watched this polling now for weeks and what you see is a romney problem. although he's defeated his main opponent tonight as we see newt gingrich is not in this top three. he hasn't sold himself. now, he can keep trying to convince the right that he's a part of the right but of course that would be dishonest because he isn't part of the political right. he's a pragmatic business guy who would like to see taxes probably lower than barack obama would. perhaps believes in less government than barack obama but only marginally. he is much closer to president obama in his temperament and who he is politically and in his political history than he is to the right. he doesn't fit really with santorum. and certainly doesn't fit with ron paul. and they all
are too early to call but based on early entrance polling, ron paul, mitt romney, and rick santorum are competing to win in iowa tonight. chris matthews is at the convention center in des moines, iowa and joins us now. how quickly do you expect the caucuses to move from this point? at this point too early to call but those three bunched at the top? >> i'm hearing it's going to take a while tonight, rachel. i think that's a statement in itself. too early to call can be misinterpreted to meaning it's going to be a close race. i'm taking it that way because romney is not racing above this pack or out in front of this pack. the fact that he's being challenged by someone so limited in their political appeal as rick santorum who was defeated in pennsylvania by 17% for re-election shall the fact that ron paul is able to challenge him in a serious race for president, with all his baggage, tells you that the republicans are not lining up behind mitt romney yet. now maybe late tonight i'll change that view but i've watched this thing and watched this polling now for weeks and what you see is
, and rick santorum. as you can see there just 4% in. this decision by nbc news to call this too close to call is based on both what we have in terms of early results and also our entrance polling. we'll check in now with our nbc news political director chuck todd about what we know about why this race is so close right now. chuck? >> well, as you know, our boiler room down at 30 rock does a lot of different modeling and based only on precinct modeling. if you just get rid of the entrance polls. on the data that has come in, 0.3 of 1%. okay? separates first and third. and based on different models depending on what happens, any of the three appears it can win. we can also report that the entrance poll did overstate ron paul not by some significant of a margin and that is why you've seen some reporting people following on twitter feeds about where paul was and this or that. as we're seeing the actual data come in it's showing that romney and santorum were under represented in the entrance poll and paul was over represented. now remember, it is an entrance poll. and because it's an entra
between rick santorum, the former pennsylvania governor, and mitt romney, the former pennsylvania senator, i should say, and mitt romney, the former governor of massachusetts. both at 25%. ron paul, we have now projected will come in third. he's got 21% right there. newt gingrich, 13%. rick perry, 10%. michele bachmann, the congresswoman from minnesota, only 5%. jon huntsman, the former utah governor, 1%. let me show you our official projections as of right now. we'll put it up on the board over here. we can't project who wins or comes in second, because it is so close between rick santorum and mitt romney, but we can project that ron paul, the congressman from texas, will come in third. newt gingrich, the former speaker of the house, will come in fourth. rick perry, the governor of texas, will come in fifth. michele bachmann, the congresswoman from minnesota, will come in sixth, and jon huntsman, the former u.s. ambassador to china, the former utah governor, will come in seventh. let's go to john king. he's monitoring what's going on at the magic wall. and it's a dramatic night. who woul
romney is the winner in iowa but only by eight votes over rick santorum. >> this is a campaign night where america wins. we're gonna change the white house and get america back on track. >> next stop, next week in new hampshire. >> meanwhile, speaking of new hampshire, rick santorum wasted no time heading to the granite state this morning. >> game on! >> can rick ride his recent wave of popularity to victory? that's the big question. >> he does get our writers cold open mvp, though, for that line. but for rick perry, it's back to texas. >> game off. >> i decided to return to texas, assess the results of tonight's caucus, determine whether there is a path forward for myself in this race. >> when you say that, there's no path forward. more on the shrinking g.o.p. field, perhaps. "fox & friends" starts, you've heard me, now. >> hi, this is rick santorum. >> hi, this is newt gingrich. >> this is congresswoman michelle bachmann. >> this is herman cain. >> this is governor rick perry of the great state of texas and you're watching "fox & friends." >> yep. and the -- >> during happ
show" tonight from new york. mitt romney edged out rick santorum. darn it, i missed it by a few votes. i picked santorum, didn't i? liberals, why are you chewing me out when it comes to stumping for santorum? you know who the big winner was last night? president obama. today he was in ohio making moves that congressional republicans have been blocking for months. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> you think we can get more than an eight-vote margin here in new hampshire, i'm going to try. >>squeaked by santorum. the big winner in iowa last night was the president. today the president is kicking off his campaign with a big speech and some bold moves. >> today i'm appointing richard as america's consumer watchdog. >> msnbc's richard wolffe and katrina vandal heuvel of "the nation" magazine on the fallout from iowa and how it helps the president. >>> if you take, you know, santorum and perry and bachmann and gingrich, you get some sense of what a small minority romney really represents. >> the republican plan to stop mitt romney is beginning to unfold. and it's gaining momentum
victory. former senator and world's palest dark horse rick santorum lost iowa by only eight votes, which is six 1,000ths of 1%. to put that in layman's term, romney got the vote of every black republican in iowa. santorum's near victory proves that money hasn't taken over our political process no matter how hard i try. one man with a vision, a willingness to work hard and a laser-like homophobia can still make a mark. but santorum scored an even bigger victory last night because this morning for the first time in eight years, when i googled the word "santorum," the first result was for rick santorum. yes. [cheering and applause] the cruel definition of a frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter was fittingly at number two, so senator santorum, i hope you're feeling a frothy mixture of pride and hope. sadly, it was a rough night for newt gingrich, coming in fourth place thanks to a blistering barrage of negative ads. in december nearly half of all political commercials in iowa were attacks on newt gingrich. it got so bad even non-political ads went after him. ♪ i'm loving it unlike newt

of steal the 36 hours after what was a great night for rick santorum in iowa. but the romney campaign had this ready to go, grabbed the news cycle. rick santorum, who has a thread bear campaign wasn't on tv. he was kind of a ghost for a while until later that evening. it was great stage managing except when he got to new hampshire, kind of lackluster event. nevertheless, mccain has now gone out with him and he's helping romney attack santorum on the question of earmarks, which is helpful. so former enemies but now an ally who's by his side. >> julianna, seriously, the two things mitt romney has going for him right now are the idea of -- or aura of inevitability and aura of electability. is that something that counts in new hampshire? is he laying the groundwork for other places? >> new hampshire is known for surprises and not wanting to follow in the footsteps of iowa. he's got electability. what he doesn't necessarily have is relateability. when you talk to voters here over the past several days, i have been at a number of rick santorum events, an unemployed carpenter said look, rick san
